ASME Institutional 'Commitment to Scholarship' Awards 2021

Kim Walker, ASME, and Peter Johnston of SMERC with the award

The Scottish Medical Education Research Consortium (SMERC), a national institutional collaboration of the Universities of Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh, Glasgow, St Andrews and NES, was set up to support high quality and important medical education research and build education research capacity.  In June, SMERC was awarded the inaugural Institutional Commitment to Scholarship Award (ICSA) by the Association for the Study of Medical Education (ASME). The award is presented to ASME members for exceptional commitment to ‘Advancing Scholarship in Medical Education’, including translation of medical education evidence into policy or practice.

This award was celebrated at the ASME Honours webinar held on 24th June where Professor Peter Johnston, Interim Director gave a presentation about SMERC, its aims and vision.
